Westboro is a trendy and vibrant community located along the Ottawa River. It is bordered on the east by Island Park Drive, on the west by Woodroffe Avenue, and is considered one of Ottawa's new hot spots. With an increasingly lively street scene, it is establishing itself as a destination for food, shopping and nightlife.

Getting its start in the late 19th century, Westboro was originally considered cottage country, then as a police village from 1903 to 1949 when it was annexed by Ottawa.

A thriving community with a lively street scene, the neighbourhood features murals painted by local artists, and a flourishing musical community, punctuated by the annual Westfest Music Festival, held every June.

The neighbourhood boasts a concentration of outdoors stores including Mountain Equipment Co-op, Bushtukah, The Expedition Shoppe and Trailhead adequately reflecting the population of outdoor enthusiasts.

Close to cycling trails and white water rapids in the Ottawa River, the cosmopolitan comforts of the city transition easily into a nature escape. Trendy boutiques, gourmet restaurants and coffee shops on Richmond Road have helped turn Westboro into a sophisticated, upscale neighbourhood.

There are a number of community based churches in the area, including Citywide Church, located in the heart of Westboro, as well as schools and recreation centres.

Access to Hwy 417 is a quick drive away, and the neighbourhood is served by two stations of the rapid-bus Transitway: Westboro and Dominion. OC Transpo routes 18 and 2 serve the residents of this desirable neighbourhood.
